Its been a nice week. Not much worth writing about but overall good vibes.
Got refunded (in vouchers) for my flights to Sydney and Perth I had to cancel. Which allowed me to book flights to Adelaide later in the year.
Picked my car back up from my parents house so now I have a little more freedom.
Got to drink tea with this guy. We call him Fred
Got my recipes photographed and written up a whole day before posting them (yay for being organised!).
I’ve been working on fixing up some issue with some of he previous pictures on some devices. This is still an ongoing process.
I’ve also been working on a few ideas for the blog which you should hopefully see in the next few weeks.
I even finally got around to putting something on my about page. It is still a work in progress though.
Overall I’m working on getting more organised.
This week I have three easy canapés for you. They don’t require much in the way of ingredients or assembly.
Tomato, Basil & Ricotta
Cherry (or other small) Tomatoes
Ricotta (or Cottage Cheese)
Arrange crackers of your choice (I prefer rice crackers) onto a serving plate.
Place half tsp of ricotta (or cottage cheese) onto each cracker.
Quarter your cherry tomatoes and place one quarter on the ricotta.
Season with salt & pepper to taste.
Place basil leaf (or half a leaf for big leaves) on each tomato slice.
Grape & ham bites
Ham slices (or you can use bacon)
Heat a frying pan and brown the ham (or bacon) to your liking.
Once ham is browned remove from pan and toss grapes to warm lightly in the ham/bacon fat left in the pan.
Cut ham into slices.
Wrap each grape with a slice of ham and secure with a toothpick.
This one is by far the easiest.
Sauce to serve
The trick here is to pick some gourmet flavoured ones. you can get them from your supermarket or your local butcher will often have a good range.
Brown the outside of the sausages.
Slice into rounds.
Cook the rounds in the pan to lightly brown the middles.
Place in a bowl and serve with your favourite dipping sauce.
I made a simple honey Sriracha sauce by mixing half a tbs of honey with half a tbs of Sriracha sauce and a splash of sesame oil.
So there you go. Three super easy canapés for you next occasion.
